WHO ARE WE?
INC Board, NFP is a Community Mental Health Funding Alliance, the local mental health authority and are better known as 'INC' in the
south Kane County area. We are a unique partnership of seven township community mental health 708 boards. After passing a referendum
for collection of a mental health tax, each township levies this tax upon recommendation of their 708 board. The levies are combined to
maximize planning and funding for the residents in all seven townships for mental health, developmental disability and substance abuse
services. The combined levies are administered by INC, the umbrella board, with a small staff. The umbrella board consists of a
representative from each of the seven township community mental health 708 boards and eight at-large members.
INC staff works closely with local area schools, universities, service providers, agencies, hospitals, the health department, other local
funders and others to keep on top of available community mental health services and plan for their delivery to any resident in need.
INC is also involved with state associations to keep abreast of broader issues. Through knowledge gained by working on these
collaborations, committees, task forces, councils, etc., staff determines where the system needs improvement and shares knowledge with
the board of directors to design a Three-Year Plan with One-Year updates. The Plan provides an overview of the service delivery
system, goals for improvement and objectives to reach the goals.
Agencies funded by INC work to improve service delivery in accordance with INC's goals. Approximately 22 agencies are currently
funded and provide services for over 17,000 residents each year. INC also owns 16 acres of land with four buildings on the Provena
Mercy Medical Center campus in Aurora . These taxpayer-owned buildings house several agencies at below-market rent, providing
administrative and program space for them to deliver services.
INC is a member of the Association of Community Mental Health Authorities of Illinois (ACMHAI), the ARC of Illinois, the Illinois
Public Health Association, the Kane County Mental Health Council and several local Chambers of Commerce along with several
